This pressure transmitter offers mobile responsive connectivity

| By Mary Page Bailey

The enhanced Rosemount 3051 pressure transmitter (photo) features user interfaces that have been redesigned to provide a simplified, task-based menu structure with common navigation across host and configuration tools for a faster, more intuitive user experience. The new, high-contrast, backlit display can operate in eight different languages, and its visual icons give better insight to transmitter status. The new Bluetooth wireless technology simplifies configuration and service tasks without having to physically connect to a device, eliminating the need to climb ladders or tanks, get hot-work permits or enter hazardous locations. With built-in password protection, users will have an encrypted data connection from the transmitter to the mobile device or configuration tool. Additional transmitter upgrades include capabilities that have historically been limited to flowmeters and level devices. Now, operators can easily configure the device to measure flowrate, as well as track total flow. Volume measurements are also possible for common tank styles or even customized tanks that require a strapping table. — Emerson Automation Solutions, St. Louis, Mo.
